Dvein Gets Xcentric

Barcelona-based Dvein gets eccentric with six beautiful ident-like spots for the experimental cinema’s exhibition, Xcentric. The exhibition will feature 50 years of Spanish, independent cinema as well as travel to different locations in the US. Commissioned through their reps, 8 de agosto, Dvein directed and produced the spots with their usual technical finesse. The 3D blends perfectly with some live-action elements to end in an abstract poem.

“The Rogue Film School is not for the faint-hearted; it is for those who have travelled on foot, who have worked as bouncers in sex clubs or as wardens in a lunatic asylum, for those who are willing to learn about lockpicking or forging shooting permits in countries not favoring their projects. In short: for those who have a sense for poetry. For those who are pilgrims. For those who can tell a story to four year old children and hold their attention. For those who have a fire burning within. For those who have a dream.” – Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog seems to have planned the ultimate January vacation if your idea of a great vacation is to lock yourself in a conference room with the greatest director of all time*, while he dares you to take life into your own hands and calls you a coward over team building exercises that involve lockpicking and forgery. Apply here and we’ll see you in January!

Check out more from Film4, or just more studio idents.

Please don’t Telstra. Oh crap, you already did.

France Télécom, the parent company of telco Orange, recently entered the world of film, with the launch of its own production company Studio 37.

Studio branding has always interested me, and although Studio 37 is far more subtle than the big studios, this beautifully crafted spot by French agency Moustache is 20 seconds of self described “movie clichés” all done without over emphasisng the fact that its owned by a mobile phone company.

Unfortunately for Australian’s though, our largest telecommunications provider Telstra, has also just revealed that its getting into the movie business, by turning a horrible series of ads into a film.

Telstra: 1. Progression of Australian film industry: 0.
